Grilling on the helmet of your enemies is the history of a place that used this style of yakiniku. (The helmet is a domed gas fired cast iron grill in the center of the table.)
Just back from Honolulu...ate here...http://yakinikudonday.com/
Is this "Korean Style" yakiniku?
Any around here?
The dome shaped grill allowed the grease to run off. We had shortribs and bulgogi. Grilled kimchee as well with about an entire head of sliced fresh garlic.
As good as that was we were served a huge bowl of incredibly fresh greens to wrap around our meats.
At one point there were 31 different dishes on the table!
Asking about a poster on the wall of a girl (in Korean script) holding a bottle of "Bek Se Ju" we were intrigued and got a bottle.
Their website claim it to be Asia's #1 Herbal Wine made from specialty rice and 12 different herbs including ginseng. Drink, you'll like.
Please save me a trip looking if you know where to buy the drink in the area or who uses these grills. I'm betting there are some very cool places hidden in strip malls that worth searching out.
The term "Yakiniku" - Are their different types of yakiniku grills and different food styles?
What have you found?
